Oh, I see. 

When I use `dumpbin.exe /SYMBOLS flapack.pyd`, I see dbdsqr referenced, but I can't access it under any name. ISTR that some other LAPACK function in scipy uses dbdsqr(), so it should be in there but perhaps the symbol is not exported. I can't find it in any of the other .pyd files in site-packages\scipy\linalg.
